There’s obviously a place for FIFA in the gaming world, and PES happily launches every year, just about hanging on to the coat tails of EA’s most successful title. But is there room in the gaming scene for a football game which doesn’t have an unlimited budget, doesn’t have the big licenses and was created by just one person? We get to find out with the launch of Super Arcade Soccer 2021.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Super Arcade Soccer 2021 comes from the one person dev team of Ruben Alcañiz as they look to take on the might of EA and Konami and muscle in on the football scene.
Well, strictly that’s not true as Super Arcade Soccer 2021 is a totally different beast than those two behemoths, instead doing away with the simulation angle to provide a more arcade-styled kickabout.
It comes with a mere £5.79 price tag attached, but promises to ‘let you play soccer like never before’. Them’s the words of Ruben Alcañiz, not us, yet we’re not really sure the statement was meant to ring as true as it does.
Our full review of Super Arcade Soccer 2021 will let you in on the secrets of this football title, as it speaks the truth on whether the passing, dribbling, shooting, heading and volleying ever comes off. Spoiler: Unfortunately, it doesn’t.
Super Arcade Soccer 2021 is however promising to deliver the basics of what you would expect to see in any football title. There are leagues, cups, friendly matches, local games, a variety of tactics and more. With 100 clubs, 60 international teams and 1800 players who have been based on real-world footballing stars, if you’re looking to take a punt, it covers the basics. But please, give our review a read prior to splashing any cash.
